The regulator is in the alternator. it sounds like it isn't charging the battery anymore. battery voltage should be around 14 volts with engine running. also check connections at alternator to battery. have seen corrosion here keep the battery from charging

2007 500. Why is battery not charging?


Hi, Is there a charging warning light on the dash? Have you checked to see if the alternator is sending out a charge? Have you checked the fuses (I think no 17)?

1999linclon town car do not charge overnite good battery and alternator


Did you replace cable ends? Sometimes the cable side gets corroded inside the wire covering. May look like the battery is clean of corrosion and well attached but it's the cable side the battery post fitting. Try changing the ends. A cheap and easdy solution.

Brake and battery light on new battery and alternator installed


Wouldn't be a fuse, but it seems as if the alternator is still not putting out normal power, or else your battery has a problem taking a charge. Better have the battery tested for a dead cell. also see what a voltmeter says about alternator output now. If you have an electrical problem in the wiring somewhere or in the alt. charging controls, then possibly one or more of the diodes in the alternator may got burnt out. That means the alternator puts out less power.
On some newer cars, the engine computer, pcm, controls the rate of charge of the alternator. So you have to be careful diagnosing -know how your system operates. That's why mechanics always ask for year, make, model, and engine size if applicable.

I have a 2007 silverado i have had this problem 2 times now. I have no crank and no start, but i have power everywhere else. They replaced the battery the first time last week.


Could be a combination of things, they put in new battery but did they test charging system (Alternator) Your alternator might not be charging properly and you've been running on battery power. You've probably run the battery down so low that there's not enough power to run ignition but enough for lights etc. Jump start and bring to repair shop that you frequent and have them test your charging system.

Have the alternator tested. Both Autozone and Advance auto will do it for free. It's probably the diode.

Battery light comes on, replaced battery 1 week ago because of supposed dead cell(had replaced it a year ago as well) had them test alternator at the time said it was holding charge last night van died no...


THE BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON TO ALERT YOU TO THE FACT THAT THE BATTERY IS NOT BEING CHARGED BY THE ALTERNATOR, IT DOESN'T MEAN THE BATTERY HAS A PROBLEM, HAVE THE ALTERNATOR TESTED FOR PROPER OPERATION.

I would look at the alternator. I had a grand am that would do that to me, even with a brand new battery. The alternator output wasn't able to run the vehicle and charge the battery. Alternators are picky things, especially being in Canada (which I assume from the KM), the hot and cold cycles don't play nicely with the brushes and core. I'd have the alternator checked and replaced if needed.

New battery and alternator. Battery still won't hold charge


Check all your fuses if you had a system failure it could have blown a fuse. I am not sure on your vehicle where the fuse is in the car or under the hood it could also have a relay. You can check your alternator by checking the voltage at the back of the alternator where the big wire bolts on. You should have 14+ volts at the alternator.
